Entertainment Rex: June 2021

I went to the movies for the first time since February 2020 today! God, I have really missed that. Obviously in the COVID era, I have developed quite the affinity for watching movies at home, but I have always adored the cinema. Watching movies at home is fine, if a bit distracting. Watching them in... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: Cosmic Odyssey

Every time I review a book from the 1980’s, I get Hobgoblins stuck in my head. Not the Roger Stern Amazing Spider-Man story arc from issue #~250 or so, but an episode of Mystery Science Theater called Hobgoblins. I’m sure I’m not alone here in loving MST3K; it’s pretty widely appreciated in the circles of people who... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: The Long Halloween

My wife hates comics books. It’s really frustrating, but honestly, we have so little in common, and some of that so little is that she just has no interest in them whatsoever. Not just superheroes, either. The whole notion of “books with pictures in them” is anathema to her. What’s really weird is that she... Continue Reading →

Top Ten: Heroines of DC Comics

Am I alone in just not liking Jean Grey? I mean, apparently not, but in my recent Top Heroines of Marvel article, Jean Grey was the most divisive character in the comments. Some said my leaving her out was "tragic" or "outrageous"; others noted she is "meh" or "sucks". She didn't make my Top Ten,... Continue Reading →

Stew’s Reviews: DC Bombshells

I don’t know if I will have written and posted the article by the time this review is published, but I recently decided I would do a Top Ten list of my favorite comic book artists. What a foolish endeavor.  Within thirty to forty minutes of off-the-top-of-my-head thinking, I had a cut-down list of over... Continue Reading →

Characters Vs Creators – Which Means More to You?

Heroes in Crisis has ended! Tom King's latest mini-series has indeed wrapped its nine issue run, and it has joined the ranks of Vision, Mr. Miracle, and Omega Men among the short-term works for which the writer has become known. Ultimately, Heroes in Crisis was the story of how post-traumatic stress disorder affects the very real human beings behind... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Deep Dive: The Hangmen

DC is quite lacking in memorable Jobbers, often creating sub-par "serious" villains that are nonetheless recurring (most of Wonder Woman's Rogues Gallery is like that), or having Jobbers that are so forgettable that they never appear again. Marvel, by contrast, has DOZENS AND DOZENS of random-ass background Jobbers that are ALWAYS kicking around, thanks in... Continue Reading →

Top Ten: DC Comics Films

Hey, it's Snyder Month! Regardless of how you or I feel about the upcoming Snyder Cut, it's well on its way, and it will be hitting HBO Max on 3/18/21. And there has been a segment of fans who have been rabidly awaiting this moment in pop culture history. Between those fans and the morbid... Continue Reading →
